Blog Posts of Note: Week of March 20th to March 26th 2011

Nichole M Flores, who also blogs at Women In Theology, talks about Fannie Lou Hamer, Civil Rights Protests, and preaching.

Rachel Held Evans considers herself the worst pacifist in the world because of her sorta support for overthrowing Libya’s dictator. She was not alone this week but I stand by my three posts opposing the overthrow, especially in light of Joel’s new post about who the rebels are. Dun dun dun.

Meanwhile, Katie of Women In Theology wrote one of the best Christian pacifists posts of the week.

Cynthia R. Nielsen has began a series on Foucault, Augustine, and humility (2 of those three are some of my fave topics, 1 is not, you can guess). Part 1 ANDPART 2.

Julie Clawson discusses theology that matters.

    This is my first look at this site and these materials. Good stuff! Among other things, I write on the political implications of the story of God which we find in the scriptures, culminating in the jubilee teachings of Jeshua the Meshiah and the praxis of the early christian community, both in Jerusalem and in the larger world. As Walter Bruggemann wrote, Israel always lived in the shadow of an empire. Torah is a push-back against the oppressive imperial expressions of its day. Jesus, Paul and John covertly witness to the struggle of kingdom people in the shadow of Rome and often under its boot. We also live with a great beast which threatens to suck the life out of everything good, fruitful and holy. How can we read our sacred texts and not see their political side? Well, we have been, as the old song goes, “carefully taught” to not see what is plainly there, plainly still here!
    Strength to you as you carry on!
    Peace and grace,
    Trace James
